Victron Skylla-i 24/100 (1+1) 230V Battery Charger
Victron Skylla-i 24/100(1+1) 230V battery charger
A modern and powerful battery charger aluminium epoxy powder coated cases with drip shield and stainless steel fixings that withstands the rigors of an adverse environment: heat, humidity and salt air. Smaller and lighter compared to similar models
Circuit boards are protected with an acrylic coating for maximum corrosion resistance.
Temperature sensors ensure that power components will always operate within specified limits, if needed by automatic reduction of output current under extreme environmental conditions.
Skylla-i (1+1): two outputs to charge 2 battery banks
The Skylla-i (1+1) features 2 isolated outputs. The second output, limited to approximately 4 A and with a slightly lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery.
The right amount of charge for a lead-acid battery: variable absorption time
When only shallow discharges occur the absorption time is kept short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged.
BatterySafe mode: preventing damage due to excessive gassing
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has been chosen, the Skylla-i will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached.
Storage mode: less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (26,4 V for 24 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘refresh’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
NMEA2000 Canbus connection
Next to a CAN bus (NMEA2000) interface, a rotary switch, DIP switches and potentiometers are available to adapt the charge algorithm to a particular battery and its conditions of use.Please refer to the manual for a complete overview of the possibilities.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, the Skylla-i is provided with a voltage sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
Use as a power supply
As a result of the perfectly stabilized output voltage, the Skylla-i can be used as a power supply if batteries or large buffer capacitors are not available
Suitable for AC and DC supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation)
The chargers also accept a DC supply.
Using Remote on-off port, can be connected to a Li-Ion BMS 12/200
The Skylla-i Control panel provides remote control and monitoring of the charge process with LED status indication. In addition, the remote panel also offers inputcurrent adjustment that can be used to limit the input current and thus the power drawn from the AC supply.
Li-ion (LiFePo4) ready
Simple charger on-off control can be implemented by connecting a relay or open collector optocoupler output from a Li-Ion BMS to the remote control port of the charger. Alternatively complete control of voltage and current can be achieved by connecting to the galvanically isolated CAN bus port.
